Harkness Screens and Highlands Technologies Solutions have announced an agreement to exclusively link Harkness’s technology to HTS Qalif measurement devices. 

The two companies will jointly market an integrated screen-monitoring package combining Harkness’ screen optimization software and high performance screen surfaces with the Qalif. Select theatres will start in November with both partners committing to launch a full service package at Cinemacon 2015.

The key elements of the package can be seen on Harkness and HTS trade booths and websites with immediate effect. The new integrated package will allow cinemas to optimize presentation quality at design stage and then maintain this for the lifetime of the screen.

Harkness CEO Mark Ashcroft said, "this is another element in our screen lifecycle management portfolio. Working alongside partners to ensure the best presentation within the cinema is fundamental to our approach."

HTS CEO Patrick Zucchetta said, “with such a bundle initiative, we are proud to be linked to Harkness to help the exhibition industry to improve the overall projection quality and at same time optimize the cost of ownership.”
